Hello everyone, I am currently writing a motivation letter for a Bachelor of international relations at Leiden University. The word limit is 400, so I wrote it. However,I think it doesn't look clear and good. I'd appreciate if anyone gives me advice and helps with my motivation letter. I am afraid to write and submit this letter because my English and writing skill is horrible. Thank you so much!


Dear Sir or Madam,


My name is Yosup Shin. I am writing this letter to express my motivation and interest in international relations to join a political science bachelor program starting in September 2021 in the Hague.


I have always been an inquisitive child. I never stopped asking questions to my teachers and parents. Most of the questions that I asked were about foreign languages and cultures because I was so interested in foreign languages that I can talk with people from various countries.

Fortunately, I got an opportunity to live in two foreign countries, one year in Belgium and two years in Oman.

In those two countries, all the work that I had to do was doubled compared to work in Korea. However, I never felt frustrated, and I set aims for my academic grades and future despite the new environment and stressful situations in my high school life. I studied hard every day including school works and foreign languages, read books on various subjects, remained serious and passionate every time.

All of my efforts were well demonstrated at the Model United Nations, also known as MUN.

For the first time in MUN, adapting to MUN activities was so difficult. I had to research debate topics, write a resolution, and communicate with new people. Sometimes, I wanted to give up and quit MUN, but I tried to overcome all difficulties so that I can reach the aims that I set before. Model United Nations made me a more confident and ambitious person, and it made me realize how interested I am in international relations and community. For these reasons, I wanted to study more international relations, and I came to write this motivation letter.


In-depth international relations and laws are what I am looking forward to studying. I want to be a person who connects the world. I want to use all my abilities that I can use for as many people as possible. I believe that if I can work for an international organization or become a diplomat, I can achieve the abovementioned.

I hardly trust Leiden University is the best choice to study international relations and I wish to give a great contribution to international societies through all the studies and experiences at Leiden University.


Thank you for your time in considering my motivation letter,


Yosup

What do you mean by that? Did you enter some competition?

Also, can you write a little more about how the program you're applying for will fit into your future plan?

Yes, I went to a conference in my high school, and I was selected as a member of the global MUN conference in Dubai. I wanted to say that I overcame all difficult things in high school and the outcome from those efforts helped me be a good student at MUN, even though MUN also requires tough works.


So, I wanted to be a diplomat or work in international organizations such as the EU and UN, and I think the programs that University provides are very relevant, and I think it will be really helpful for my future plan.
